Seen as one of the most powerful crests in Kwakwaka’waka mythology, Sisiutl is a double headed sea serpent with transformation powers and is often depicted as a man with two serpents. He is the guardian of the spiritual world, invincible in battle, and possessor of vast shamanic powers. Sisiutl was depicted on canoes and entryways to stop evil spirits, while warriors would wear images of him on belts and other accessories for protection.
